Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 6 or higher.

Hey mate,

Congrats for being such an ambitious dude! smile.gif I think that at THIS POINT, this piece poses a problem to you from the perspective of being forced to play things which you don;t yet master at a speed that is too fast for you to be able to focus on playing clean and articulated.

There are many spots in which your phrases are not defined and you rush just to be able to stick to the rhythm - it's the most obvious from 0:41 forward. And one more thing - I noticed you are moving both hands - right hand and left hand fingers a lot. Please focus on minimizing your movements - it will provide precision, stamina and it will generally decrease your effort when playing.

Keep practicing this at a slower speed and focus on these details - you can always post a 75% perfectly clean and balanced version in the Practice room or in your thread, so we can analyze it. But be honest with yourself mate - you have nothing to lose.

Keep rocking!

Hi mate, as Cosmin said, there are some parts that are too fast and you are not able to play them correct. As we always say, it would be very important to slow down this lesson and practice slowly at a tempo that you can play each part precise. Once you find that tempo, I would be very interesting on hearing your take. Feel free to post it at my personal board or send it via PM to let me give you feedback about the slower take.

When you are practising, it much useful to repeat many times something well played at a comfortable tempo than something bad played at a faster tempo. That's why my suggestion is to use the slower backing to practice this one and be sure to play it tight. Then increase the tempo 5 bpm and try to play it. If you are able to play it tight continue increasing tempo. But you have to be patient, I think that this lesson needs many weeks of practice to be mastered.

Sometimes lesson progress comes to the point where it's more about some huge expirience and crossing the pass line seems to be a huge challange because of the precission that will come through time and also Your own experiments with Your hands - positions, resting points etc. For now I would suggest to try some other lessons like this and go back to it. You might find some very usefull tips outhere that will also help this one smile.gif I really admire Your attitude!
